I am suffering from dandruff from 4 to 5 yrs. It's very itchy and on my head there are a lott pimples also there. So how can I cure by naturally by home remedies.
From last 6 years, I have a hyper pigmentation on my cheeks and nose. I tried so many ointments like lumacip plus, lumaglow and along with this I have to use sunscreen lotion for 2-3 times a day. When I don't apply it, scars visible again. Is there any permanent solution to get rid of this. Pls let me know I am fed up of these. I don't want to apply lotion as I am office goer.
Suffering from pimples problem since 1 year consulted many doctors but did not get right solutions yet hope to get good n better solutions from this app.

4.Take an oil bath once a week to replenish your skin of its oils.
5.Try to wear a jacket or a coat while going out so that it shields you from the direct effect of pollution.
